The Bengals crushed the Steelers on Sunday for a 41-10 victory and running back Joe Mixon was a big reason why.
Mixon racked up 165 yards on 28 carries with a pair of touchdowns. And that was enough to earn him AFC offensive player of the week.
It was Mixon’s second big game in a row, as he had 123 ears on 30 carries with a pair of TDs against the Raiders in Week 11. Mixon has also rushed for two touchdowns in each of his last three games.
At 7-4, the Bengals have a significant matchup against the 6-5 Chargers this weekend.
